Is Calorie Information Helpful? With Dr Giles Yeo
"It's an interesting time. Let's put it that way in the uk. It's been a crazy kind of year and at the moment menus are soon going to be full of calories. Now you've got to count about calories. And i was wondering if you think that this should be becoming part of the conversation is a good thing a bad thing. You know i'm gonna give you maybe a surprisingly nuanced answer. I think clearly we are in a middle of a situation in which the vast majority of noncommunicable diseases not infectious diseases we are clearly in the middle of infectious disease pandemic but non infectious diseases that we face today are diet related. Okay this is true so clearly. There's something about our food environment and how we interact and how our relationship with food which needs fixing and part of that is more information. And i think that is probably going to be helpful. But is the calorie. The right information to have i guess is is the question i'm going to give a depends on what we using it for so my colleagues here in cambridge that this is not was not work. That was done by me. They have shown that calorie information at point of purchase. Your coffee shop for example you walk by and the muffin is four hundred calories type of thing that that that information on average makes a person eight percent less likely to buy the food and hence presumably consume consumed the food. So i think what calorie information does at point of purchase in cafes restaurants is to give people pause for thought it makes people think i do i do. I need this food. Not case there is some use bought. Is it useful as a piece of information to let you know how healthy something is if something four hundred calories does it mean as healthy is. It's healthiest something. That's five hundred calories and there is going to be no.

Traders are back from the kitchen and analysts. Always have a ton of thuds. Some people think it's inflation some set. It's an upcoming european central bank meeting. But what i want to focus on is a less than ideal jobs report ready. Let's go. I'll start with the good news. We learned that in august overall unemployment declined to five point. Two percent from july's overall employment rate of five point four percent zero point two percent but i will take it because that represents a lot of people that now have paycheck coming in to their mailbox. That's kind of where the good news stops. Though this report we learned that the us economy added only two hundred thirty five thousand jobs in august which was a sharp drop from analysts expectations. But even looking at july's total which was nine hundred forty three thousand jobs to make matters worse fortune actually dig a little deeper and looked at the national women's law center. They say that women only accounted for eleven point nine percent of those jobs in august again. If you look at july women were sixty eight point eight percent of the new jobs. It's your reminder that we aren't back to pre pandemic level employment and that women are disproportionately leaving a now reentering the workforce at alarming rates.

When pediatric cova cases have increased exponentially with over a fivefold increase from july to august as a parent of three children about start school not yet eligible to be vaccinated. I have to say. I do take quite a bit of solace in the uae body of data. We have so far indicating that children already significant lower risk of serious illness cova compared to adults but no one wants their kid giving coveted and things really hit home when i came across a report released by the cdc earlier this week. On a case in marin county california from may where an unvaccinated elementary schoolteacher infected with delta variant spread the virus to have the students classroom seating. An outbreak eventually infected twenty-six people. The teacher taught for two days. Well symptomatic and before getting tested which itself not recall during which time she read aloud without a mask to twenty four students everyone the front row tested positive which fell to eighty percent in the first two rows in the back. Three rose twenty eight percent of students test positive. You can see how it diffuses through the class. There and unvaccinated teacher dropped her mask despite rules. Schools to wear masks endures within days. Half for class was positive for the virus at a school. That had been conscientious about falling kobe. Protocols

Mary was invited to a national. Science foundation. committee created to improve the nation's performance in the field of science in a series of tests designed to figure out what blocked strong students from continuing into careers in science. Mary saw a big problem of all of the sixteen to nineteen year olds who scored in the top ten percent on aptitude tests and then did not go onto college. Ninety eight percent were women. The time women had serious. Barriers to access college education endowments for women's colleges were much lower than those of their male counterparts. Perhaps most importantly curriculum requirements didn't accommodate the different societal expectations for women.

How Much Do You Know About Planet Mercury?
"Admit it isn't the sexiest planet. There's no atmosphere like venus. It isn't an object of exploration like mars. It isn't big like jupiter in. It doesn't have the beautiful rings of saturn. I'm guessing most of you haven't really given to thoughts about mercury. And i'm reasonably confident in saying that because most space agencies and astronomers don't really think about mercury either more on that in a bit i i should probably do a quick tale of the tape for mercury. Mercury is about point. Four astronomical units from the sun and an astronomical unit is the average distance from the earth to the sun the massive of mercury is approximately thirty eight percent that of earth. the planet has no discernible atmosphere. Which makes it more like the moon than any other body in the solar system. One of the most unique aspects of mercury is that a day on mercury is longer than its year. One year on mercury is eighty seven point nine earth days and one solar day on mercury is one one hundred seventy six days. Mercury is the second hottest planet in the solar system behind venus. The only reason why venus's hotter is that it has an incredibly thick atmosphere that traps heat. Mercury has no atmosphere whatsoever during the day surface. Temperatures on mercury can reach eight hundred and forty degrees fahrenheit or four hundred fifty degrees celsius. Whoever on the nightside of the planet temperatures can dip down to minus two hundred seventy five fahrenheit or minus one hundred and seventy celsius mercury was known to ancient peoples. But they didn't really know much about it because of how close it is to the sun it would only appear just before sunrise and the eastern horizon or just after sunset on the western horizon. The name mercury came from the roman. God mercury who was the messenger of the gods ancient china. It was known as the our star and in modern chinese korean japanese and vietnamese. It is literally known as the water star. The indians associated the planet with buddha and the day wednesday and the germans associated with the god odin and oddly enough wednesdays the mayan people associated mercury with an owl and thought that it was the messenger to the underworld

"Back in the day, people used to think that the key to investment success was choosing the right investments. I'm not so sure too many people believe that anymore. I don't think you believe it. I think what you believe, is that the key to investments success is choosing not the investments, but the investment advisor because I don't think you're trying to do this on your own. And I think you're right about that today. The world of investing has gotten so complicated far more complex, not only the incredible array of investment products that you can choose from their fourteen thousand mutual funds.

"Eight percent to be a couple of years. These home purchase prices, three hundred thousand dollars, five hundred thousand dollars. Two percent of that is still a lot of money to pay down and it's not just your mortgage payment is made up of your principal and your interest in taxes in all this other garbage. So that can be a huge amount of money that you're spending every month that you don't need to. I really like that tip Allott and let's talk about paying off the mortgage or keeping it. Do you recommend people pay off their mortgage? You recommend they keep the mortgage for as long as they have it. Can I jump back real quick? I'll come back to that question, but you made a really good analogy with your like channeling David Greene right now with Scott and his contractors and an off loading the work. So just because sky is offloading the work to his contractors doesn't mean that he doesn't have responsibility to understand what they're doing or understand what the costs are or to research and know the trade off between courts countertops or tile counter tops, or certain types of flooring than how that is. Going to help with the rents in his units. So if you're hiring a financial planner to off load more of the financial work, maybe on a retainer fee paying more per year. You still have the personal responsibility to know the right questions to ask to get enough detail, and this is just comes down to you need to do a little bit of research on your own. Even if you don't want to do the work, you need to understand it enough to make sure that they are doing a good job just like Scott with a contractor just offload into a property manager. Also in real estate is another thing where you can get into trouble if you just offloaded in you have no idea how they do their work or how they treat tenants. Same thing with financial planners, you still need to understand what they're doing, why they're doing it, and they should always be willing to answer your questions. That's our job. You know that that's what we need to be able to do and ask them the tough questions like, why did I pay you this much? Why are you charging me this much? If it's someone who's good their job, they're gonna tell you why? And they're okay if you don't pay them anymore because someone else will. So there's a. Responsibility there that definitely you have to keep in mind that even though you may be offload in it, you're still in charge of your own destiny..
